26 Helpful Landscape Photography Tips

Landscape photography takes a confluence of skill, creative vision, lots of planning, and sometimes, just a bit of luck to produce winning images. This great video will give you 26 helpful tips to improve your landscape images and make the shooting process a bit easier and more effective.

Coming to you from Gary Gough, this awesome video features 26 helpful landscape photography tips to improve your work. Personally, one of the best tips I ever received was to stop focusing on the obvious. We tend to choose landscape locations because they contain a certain iconic view or the like, and while they are certainly sought after for a reason, the fact that they are obvious choices can prevent you from challenging your photographic eye and developing a better sense for landscape compositions and for finding more unique images that have not been shot as much. It is certainly worth it to go to less popular locations and spend time challenging yourself to find the less readily apparent shots. Check out the video above for lots of helpful tips from Gough.
